Bottle drank after some awesome tuna tartare I made while Jenny and I watch reruns of Psych. Aroma starts out with hints of butterscotch but doesn’t get quite as sugary as initial impressions would suggest. More burnt caramel, apple/plum skins, and black pepper in the nose that blunt the residual sugars. Tastes of clean, sweet caramel chews with plenty of black pepper spiciness. Malty body with a nice earthy, prickly spice. Body is slightly velvety, moderate thickness. Really well balanced and clean!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A half year old bottle. A dark brown beer with a medium and beige head. The nose of dark and ripe fuits with medium sweetness, spices, some alcohol and anise, also hint of earthyness in the background. Taste of dark and dried fruits with some sweetness, prunes, bananas, spices, also some alcohol in the middle, the end is still slightly booze and dries only a little. Medium+ bodied, balanced carbonation. Quite sweet and dark fruity beer with hint of booze, that is not bothering, but not very sophisticated.

Super complex with hints of fig, raisins and chocolate/ espresso. It’s definite you can taste the roasted malt throughout, a tasty treat with a nice non-hop bitter finish. It’s an amazing addition to my ratebeer ratings. Thank you Christian!

Odeur caramel et épice, belle robe rouge brun opaque, goût un bel équilibre sucre et amertume, chaude et ronde en bouche, long arrière goût terreux. Bonne bière de dégustation.
